A 75-year-old Alzheimer’s sufferer from Suffolk has been found after he was reported missing by relatives following a shopping trip to Norwich.

Suffolk police officers were said to have been “very concerned” for the welfare of Keith Smith, from Wrentham, and appealed for people to come forward with information.

Mr Smith had last been seen by relatives at 4.10pm this afternoon, while shopping in Norwich.

He suffers from Alzheimer’s and has previously been reported missing having taken a wrong bus.

At 9pm Suffolk police announced Mr Smith had been found “safe and well” and thanked people for helping with the appeal.
